My wife and I along with some friends used this B&B after hiking Cader Idris (21.06.14). Upon arrival it was an informal welcome with a very young barmaid showing us to our room. Before doing this she asked us what time we would like breakfast in the morning. We replied "at around 9am". We felt that her response encouraged us to be sooner ! When we asked what time is check-out, she was unsure. We chose to eat dinner at the in-house restaurant. We had to ACTIVELY find a menu to enable us to order. Our food took quite some to arrive but was warned about this when ordering. The food itself was adequate..nothing wonderful but okay pub grub. The Guinness on tap was fantastic ! Our room for the night (with a 4 poster bed) was very comfortable. Breakfast the following morning was quite a basic affair. A choice of only 2 different cereals on the "help yourself" breakfast bar to start. The very young waitress later asked what could she get us for breakfast. Without knowing what was on offer I asked if there was a breakfast menu we could choose from. She ran off to get one. The cooked breakfast had it's good points with good quality bacon but lukewarm baked beans ! Overall our stay was comfortable after a hard day's walk. The food is a good average and the room was very nice. What is needed is more attention to customer service upon arrival and a more professional running of the restaurant.
